WILLIAM J. BKYAN
TALKS OF TRUSTS AT
William J. Bryan made his first
speech at West Superior on Saturday.
In the course of it he said:
“Mr. McKinley complains that the
Democrats did not destroy the trusts
when they had an opportunity and when
he complained you must believe he was
honest in his complaint. You cannot
accuse him of being a hypocrite, and yet
Mr. McKinley has been president for
three and a half years and during that
time more trusts have been organized
than in all the previous history ol the
country, and he has allowed three ses
sions of congress to convene and adjourn
and did not recommend a specific meas
ure for the destruction of the trusts.
And Mr. Hanna, w r ho stands at the
head of the Republican National com
mittee during this campaign, who
stood at the head of ihe Republican
National committee in IhWtt, declared the
other day that there were no trusts.
Now, if you believe that Mr. Mc-
Kinlev was honest when he condemned
the Democrats for not destroying the
trusts, how can yon explain his policy
in doing the same thing He selected
an attorney general from New Jersey,
where most of the trusts have their
homes, and that attorney general draws
his salaiy for not interfering with the
trusts. The attorney general of the
stab* of Nebraska, a Democrat elected
on the fusion ticket has brought more
suits in the state of Nebraska, against
P' trust-; Hum tip* K•, . .... attorney
general of the United States has brought
against the trusts of the United States."

STATE BOARD OF DENTAL
EXAMINERS WIN A BIG VICTORY
IN THE SUPREME COURT.
"While 1 have not seen the decision of the Supreme ( onrt overruling
the action of .fudge Wyman in sustaining the demurrer of Mortimer J.
Rioeof Monroe county to part of the return of the State Board of
Dental Examiners t i his petition for the peremptory writ of mandamus
compelling the hoard to grant him a license to practice in this state, 1
feel that it is highly important to all dentists and all State Boards of
Dentistry," said Gen. ,1. B Doe, of Milwaukee, attorney for the State
“Of coarse we are gratified over our victory," he continued. “As I
understand it the Supreme court holds that the State board has the
discretionary power to decide as to the reputableness of the dental
college. Dr. 'Rice has a diploma from the Kansas City College of
Dental Surgery and he wanted the State board to grant him a license
on the strength of it The board, after a thorough investigation found
that the Kansas City college was Hot a reputable institution, that it
had been so declared by a Missouri court, and that it had sold diplomas
without requiring any examinations. We found that ‘Dr.’ Rice be
came an instructor in the college after being there six months. The
college went out of existence in ls|t7, a year after the ‘doctor' got his
diploma. After the State board had refused to issue him a license uu
less he passed a satisfactory examination, the ‘doctor' brought action
for a peremptory writ of mandamus to compel it to recognize his
diploma and grant him the desired license. To this we made a return
and the ‘doctor' demurred. His demurrer was sustained by Judge
Wyman and the board appealed. As I understand it. the contention
of the ‘doctors' attorneys that our law does not give the State board
discretion to decide which arc and which are not reputable dental
colleges is not upheld by the Supreme court. In other words, the
board has power to pass on this question. "
Mr. Rice's attorneys in the action ,inst decided were ex-Assemblyman
David R. Jones of Sparta, bis assistant, Henry 1,. Sheldon of Madison,
and Mr. Jones' law partner, Attorney Richards of Sparta. The appeal
was argued before the Supreme court early this month.
A suit is now pending against Mr. Rice for practicing without a
license. The State board did not care to push this case until the
Supreme court had passed on the mandamus action.
Mr. Rice was arrested and fined last spring for assaulting Dr. W. H.
Carson of Milwaukee. Secretary of the State board.

< )ver 1300 voters heard Mr Bohmrich
speak at Turner hall last Saturday. The
auditorium was tastefully decorated fur
the occasion. That the gubernatorial
candidate was appreciated was evident
by the hearty applause. Taking up the
Phillippine question he argued at great
length to show that the war with Agui

between rowdies of the two armies, that
Aguinaldo wanted to stop hostilities,
hut Gen. Otis said no. and the war be

the greed of the money power. He de
